Let's say I want to put "50. Quoting point number 50." in a blockquote. By default it will reset the number to 1:
- Quoting point number 50.
How can I preserve the initial number 50?

This has been fixed. Now, the numbering follows from the first item in the list. If the first item in your list is 42, the numbering will follow from that. If the next item in your list is 1037, it will still show up as 43. So the first number in your numbered list is now respected; the others still aren’t.
And in blockquotes,
- This is item 4.
- And this item is numbered 8, but shows up as 5.
The thing you need is some separation. This could be some text, or a comment.
This then does some funky things to the start of the next numbering block.
The above text is:
1. foo 2. bar The thing you need is some separation. This could be some text, or a comment. This then does some funky things to the start of the *next* numbering block. 5. qux 2. baz
Note that this is the ordered list format and baz continues with picking up on the new numbering.
